Last Sunday, students and faculty of SBA Research and TU Wien participated in the 2017 RuCTF Finals competition held in Yekaterinburg, Russia, as members of the team We_0wn_Y0u.
Students are primarily recruited from our “(Advanced) Internet Security” lecture series which is taught together with the Secure Systems Lab of TU Wien. The class is known as the “hacker lecture” at TU Wien. In this lecture students have to circumvent the security of an application approximately every two weeks in a safe environment. This prepares our students for security competitions like this one, as well as for securing commercial servers and networks in the future.
SBA supports this team financially and organizationally.
